What does God do with someone like me?

Today I got an email from a mother of nine, six of which came from China, and one that she is waiting to bring home right now! I have been reading her blog and am AMAZED at how much faith she has. Not just faith, but courage and persistence and incredible strength. She tells all about her adoptions in her blog, and her stories are incredible. God has led her family to adopt under the craziest circumstances. Once they had been home for only three months when she felt God was calling them to go back and get another child. She said they had NO money in the bank to do this....but God provided. With each of her stories she talks about how God has provided. I wrote to her asking her if my emotions were normal and telling her how in awe I am of her faith!! Her response was in short that by the end of this process, I would be in awe of HIM!!!!! She gives ALL the glory to God in her life and he has RICHLY supplied for this family that keeps blessing children with a wonderful christian home!! She knows God is with her each step of the way and is totally trusting Him to guide her life as she gets and raises these beautiful children. I know what God does with people like her....He uses them to transform faithless people like me!!! He uses others who have gone before me as an encouragement to me to REALLY live like I believe He is all powerful and almighty and to put my life here on earth in perspective! This life is but a vapor, so I better be making an eternal difference in as many lives as I possibly can!!! What better place to start than with a baby who has no family! My prayer today is that I will stop needing reminders from others to be in AWE of God!!!
